Occupy-Police

Occupy wall street turns it's attention on Washington today.  The protesters are planning a march to the White House. They arrived in DC yesterday after a more than 200 mile trek on foot from New York City. 

Occupy rallies are also scheduled today in New York's Zuccotti Park and at Philadelphia city hall. Meanwhile, the occupy protestors are costing major cities, major dollars in security and clean-up. During the first two months of the nationwide protests, the movement cost local taxpayers at least 13 million dollars in police overtime. The heaviest financial burden has fallen on law enforcement agencies tasked with monitoring marches and evicting protesters from illegal encampments.
